Dri­ven by a pas­si­on for Skate­boar­ding, Jere­my Comte direc­ted his first short docu­men­ta­ry “Feel The Hill” at eigh­teen years old, lan­ding him a world tour with the Banff Moun­tain Film Fes­ti­val. Rai­sed in the coun­try side and later gra­dua­ting from Con­cordia Uni­ver­si­ty in Film Pro­duc­tion, his con­nec­tion with natu­re and curio­si­ty for the human con­di­ti­on deepe­ned with his tra­vels around the glo­be. Comte is rou­sed by psy­cho­lo­gi­cal, raw nar­ra­ti­ves fin­ding mea­ning­ful con­nec­tions through poe­tic image­ry. His latest short fic­tion film “Fauve” won mul­ti­ple awards such as Spe­cial Jury Award at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival.
